This large town is one of the few in the area that has all the amenities, and can also be an excellent birding stop. The sewage ponds just south of town can be excellent for ducks and other assorted waterbirds. The cemetery north of town has some large trees. Around town itself are many large trees that are worth a look, especially during migration.
